There will be some major changes in the parish over the next few weeks. Our customary workflows for producing newsletter and website will be disrupted and things may take a little while to settle down.
Please bear with us during the change. Your patience is appreciated. Assistance with website/newsletter would be even more appreciated. We’re particularly keen to get a larger pool of people for printing the newsletter so if you’re in a position to pop into the church hall occasionally this would be a great help.
Was busy with bbq-related matters this morning. If anyone has any nice photos from this AM, particularly of Father George, if you can forward them to me or the website address for inclusion on the website
Thank you all in St. John the Baptist’s and St. Andrew’s parishes for the love, support and great help which I have received in my work here. I thank you for the witness of your faith, you have manifested at our Sunday Masses and during different liturgical events during the last six years in our parish churches. This definitely strengthened my own faith. Thank you all, who in a special way helped me as parish priest to organize the celebrations of the Holy Sacraments and sacramental preparations, liturgical ministries like: readers, musicians and singers, ministers of Holy Communion, altar servers, pass-keepers, cleaners and flower arrangers, parish social life, running of parish halls, administration, finances, fabrics and everything else which concerned the parishes and day to day running of the parishes!
